An ancient Greek ship recently raised off the coast of southern Sicily, Italy, is the biggest and best maintained vessel of its kind ever found, archaeologists say.

It couldn't have been that good.  It sank.
There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

Amazing to find that much of it after 2,500 years and it will be interesting to see it once it's on display.
